Nook Simple Touch

Marco Arment compares the new Nook with the Kindle 3:

The Nook can’t follow web links, since there’s no browser. The Kindle’s browser is awful, but it’s there if you need it. This isn’t a problem with most novels, but it’s relevant for many modern magazines and newspapers that are embedding links, and any content that originated as web pages (like Instapaper).

Any object registers as a “touch” on the screen, including clothing and blankets.

Amazon seems to have a much better catalog and ecosystem.
